At other times when the Board of-Trade was wrestling.-with'the problem the: ladies very foolishly were overlooked. Nobody can make a'public market "go" with- out the. co-operation of .llic'lndies. indeed if the financial, support were forthcoming, "the rest could well be left the ladies with pretty fair assurance that the venture would They' had'a market in.'Calgary years before jt ever, .anything. Simply be-. cause il.was.managed as a sort of-necessary evil. The needed in order to farmerV'produce.-The ob- ject was exemplary but it didn't fill The men reckoned wilhouHhe ladies who were to do the buying. It it hard to make'a a suc- cess unless the two elements come the producer-and the consumer. Then the Isdies became aroused '-I'j os'erihe ascending, prices of foodstuffs, and pr- i gam'zed the Consumers'.League. The result was magical. The market place became a hive of f Jiiisy shoppers. The other half'of the transaction ,was. supplied. We certainly need a market in-Lethbridge for the sake, of the farmers who have' produce to sell. Interest the ladies and they will provide the feS-- buyers. II will be, (o their own advantage. the same precautions to enumerate citizens leaving Canada for the United States as it does, to enumerate citizens of the United Slates who leave that country to. come to rCanada.: For instance, during the year 1913, 1031 people left Canada, declaring themselves intending to make their home in the United States, and they look with them 94 carloads of setters' effects. In the same, period Americans declaring them- selves to become "Canadian citizens entered western Canada "ports, bringing with them 7051 caroads of effects. These facts tell the story better than .anything else I can'say." Canada lias no need to worry.

When the period of change is oycr, and-the country has settled down once more to the-long even stride io prosperity, based on proper methods and true conditions, born out of. the pioneering exper- iences of the last decade, there is only one thing to.expect, which is that immigrants will pour in by.; 'housands where before they came 'only by hundreds.

Ihe immigriilion turning from Canada to the United Stales. We ;cannol-blainc.'the American editors for endeavoring to slenvlhe.tide which has been pouring over the.boundary into Canada for MIC past fen'years! Neither can we help, doing what we cari to correct the false impression-they are creating. While we admit'that'the perccrilage.of immi- gration may.not ioom so large as it did in 1905, .there were less (Iran a ilic Great Lakes and'the Pacific coast, the answer is that has filled up s'o rapidly that ten thousand new sett- now do not create the stir that one triousani did then! Buf'nlysis of Ihe aclua! figures will show thai Canada is holding her own. The follow- ing recently by j. Bruce Walk- er, Canadian immigration commissioner at Win- nipeg, should disabuse all minds of any false im- pression that may have been gained by the rea.d- Lig of articles based not strictly on the fads: "IHs (juile true that Americans crossed Ihe line into Canada during the past six years, but il is perfect nonsense Io say that Canadians moved fo the United Slales iii the same period. We count only as Canada those who declare themselves become pcrmnrifiil Canadian settlers and Io definitely make their homes in Canada. Those Americans who Icavd Canada certainly leave Canada; (hat is tnie: bill they leave to come back in a week, in two weeks, in (wo days or in two are not leaving permanently.

Here we. see, thereiore, the..sinking iuads of a municipality as the centre of a dispute, and that is "harmful credit, ifunicipal sinVing funds'-sboul? not be loaned on mortgages! OTJK POINT OF VIEW Nalure has been good Io Southern Alberla this winter. The prospects are the very bright- est. If Providence continues to fnvor us during the slimmer we should sec a retum of good times next fall. According to the Calgary News Telegram, Edward Michsmer, leader of the Opposition, is "the Moses of his parly." Sure! and he has 34 years yet Io spend in Ihe land of wilderness be- fore he can even start a march, and then in order to remain a Jloses he must be denied Ihe "pro- mised iand." "Mosc" Michcner-is some leader. Recent discussion of the electric 'light' dis- count and assessment problems establish one fact: the public is not gelling as much informa- tion from the city hall as they would like. This seems Io have roused the ire of some of the com- missioners, hul after all, really, il is the people's business. If they ask questions which may seem impertinent to the commissioners who are in possession of all thu facls, our advice is that the commissioners should answer without a mur- mur. Don't forget that the big principle of com- mission government is that the people rule. -SHADE TREES SUFFER Dr. in t streets of any city one will i the result" oi ovtrcronding. find at least from twenty-five to fifty Sea crowns result in .in ithese old towns require spe- cial "attention.
